Author of "Wooden Boats & Iron Men" and "Through Waves and Gales Comes Fishermen's Tales." Two books that provide the reader with a complete history of the commercial fishing industry in Lake Michigan and Lake Superior. Oral histories and stories of the last vestiges of a time-honored tradition in a waning industry. History writing, writing poetry, and nature photography are his way of seeking out the wonders of our world in compositions and finding order out of disorder in our natural world. Whether it is looking through the lens of a camera, composing poems by observing life through his mind’s eye, the creative musings and urges take him to where he needs to go.
